The Bristol and South West tech industry is currently booming and we’re all aware that finding talent and keeping them has never been so difficult. We also know that careers change, people can learn and there’s a wealth of amazing people in the area who simply didn’t take up tech as an option. That, along with a variety of Universities, Colleges and training establishments in the area all creating talented tech graduates who we would love to stay in the region.

With all of this in mind we decided that we could help sort out some of these problems by working together so with HBB, WTHub and Desklodge we came up with the power of three, set out to curate a Careers Fair and named it Tech³Shed (everything is Bristol is called Shed so we thought we may as well follow the trend!). After our November 2019 one run with Bristol Tech Fair as part of the Bristol Technology Festival we are taking a break getting ready for what we will do in 2020.

We know that the best way of finding a great job, or finding a great team member is far easier in a relaxed atmosphere and through getting to know them. We also know that recruitment fairs can be intimidating and that the world of tech can be slightly confusing for those on the outside. So we decided that we would put everything together to help demystify things, introduce trainers, people in the industry and other options to help get you into tech and invite companies down to chat to the candidates and show what they have to offer.

As part of Women’s Tech Hub we have a JobsBoard that is current throughout the year for our sponsors and others interested in diversity in their Tech Roles for our members to check out and advertise on.
